Bodies and instruments take on time

Bambie is back, and it’s about time. In fact, that’s literally what this production is all about: time. Waiting for a single minute can feel like an eternity. A year can fly by before you know it. A terrible event can make time feel like it’s standing still, while moments of happiness seem so fleeting and elusive. While the clock mechanically ticks away the milliseconds, our sense of time is wonderfully elastic. In this 18th ‘Bambie’, three mimes and three musicians get to grips with time. Seconds are stretched and light years compressed in a series of physical and musical confrontations. A production about measuring the finality and assuming the infinity of everything.

‘Like no other group, Bambie are able to make something from nothing. The silences say as much as the scenes with dialogue or music’ – NRC
